Some garden projects.

First, the Hops needed some string to grow onto. I have neglected them long enough this year. The vines are over 5 feet and should had been taken care of months ago. There are three plants here and they should yield enough hops for about 3 beers.

The grapes sprang to life, but they didn’t grow from the buds I left. I don’t know if I pruned them too early or what. They didn’t do anything for about a month after I pruned them, then all of the sudden they started growing like mad. If you click on the photo, you should be able to see the brown stem of last years growth.

I think Jeff Cox is right. They should reach the trellis this year.
